Introduction: Ridiculously Easy Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs! What? No Way!

About: something

Don't you hate trying to peel hard-boiled eggs and in the process you rip the egg apart trying to get the peel off?

Me too!

Let's delve into our third-grade (okay, maybe 4th) science memory bank and get those peels off without our eggs looking like something that came out of a garden hose.

Required ingredients:
-eggs
-water
-ice

Required supplies:
-large pot
-slotted spoon

No need for:
-vinegar
-salt
-bad attitudes

If you follow this guide EXACTLY as it states, you will never have egg issues again! The peel will come right off like a silk sheet over a glass orb. Plus, following this guide correctly ensures that a quail will visit you in your sleep and christen your sheets with glitter and freshly laid fried eggs.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Put Some Water in a Pot

So...figure out how many eggs you want to boil. Fill the pot so that the eggs are just barely covered.

BUT DON'T YOU DARE LEAVE THE EGGS IN! TAKE THEM OUT!

Step 2: Make That Water Boil

Pretty self-explanatory but here's a pretty picture anyway!

Make sure that pot is covered so too much steam doesn't escape, man.

Step 3: Put the Eggs in and Boil

Use a slotted spoon to gently place eggs direct from the fridge into the boiling water. Don't let those eggs get to room temperature or you'll mess it all up! Also make sure the eggs don't have any small hairline cracks either otherwise they won't work and you'll end up with water that looks like wonton soup.

Turn the heat down a trifle and boil eggs for exactly 13 minutes!

Step 4: Ice Ice Baby, Na-n, Na-n, Na-n-n-n

Now rapidly cool the eggs off by running cold water over them. Once it's almost full with water add a whole bunch of ice to turn the whole thing into an ice bath for eggs.

Let them sit in that icy hell for 15 minutes.

Next, get the defibrillator ready as those eggs are in a state of hypothermic shock. CLEAR...ZAP!

Step 5: Naked!!

Gently tap, and even more gently roll the eggs on a hard surface. Peel those shells off until the eggs are naked and afraid.

Out of respect for the fight against illegal egg trafficking, no picture of naked eggs will be shown. Just kidding, view at your own risk. You'll have to use your reading comprehension skills for this one...errr.

DONE!

Now enjoy making deviled eggs or eating them whole or hiding them around your house and waiting for your spouse to wonder that that smell is or whatever you do with hard-boiled eggs.

Step 6: Nailed It!

Think you nailed it?

Prove it!

Follow this guide and post your awesome pictures below of your successfully peeled hard-boiled eggs and I'll give you a totally awesome egg patch! Creative photos are preferred : /

I just tried this using 10 eggs and it really worked! I was a lil doubtful at first since I've tried so many methods for easy peel eggs and none of them worked. But this did and I will be using this method from now on- will definitely save me a lot of stress and time whenever I'll have to make deviled eggs. Thanks so much!

So it's sort of like the temperature differences that make it easy to crack?

it is like a little victory when the peel comes off easily does this work for soft boiled or only hard boiled?

I imagine it would work for soft-boiled as well. Give it a try.

So is this method for peeling eggs right after cooking? I like to boil mine and store in the shell and peel before use. Also I have fresh eggs that are not refrigerated.

Hi Auger, this is how I do it. Sounds like your method works though too :)

I do this, simply putting the recently boiled eggs under the water jet from the tap, at ambient temperature.
